This easy recipe for sticky barbecued chicken drumsticks will have your guests coming back for seconds and thirds! Giving the drumsticks time to marinate in the seasoning paste helps them taste great. Cooking the drumsticks over indirect heat helps to keep them moist and tender. Finally, basting the chicken with a sticky sauce after barbecuing gives them a lovely finish and glaze.
You can also blend the brown sugar, garlic, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor to make the marinade paste.
Made this as is and boy! was it yummy! Definitely will do this again. The only thing that threw me was that the "marinade" was not liquid, which is what I am accustomed to. Probably because I don't have a mortar and pestle so I just used a spoon. Still was delicious. - 12 Jul 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I didn't have 8 hours to marinate the chicken, only about 45 min. but it was all still very delicious. My BBQ has only one large burner so I browned the chicken, as directed and then turned the flame to low to cook it through. Yum! - 04 Jul 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used chicken thighs instead of legs. The bbq sauce was very good. Next time I think I might add a pinch of cayenne pepper. - 12 Jun 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
